She has already endeavored three rounds of Transarterial Chemoembolization (TACE). The treatments have taken a heavy toll on her body, but we all know she is strong enough to pull through it. Jennifer and her husband, Brent Rippke, have recently seen a Specialist at LSU Health Sciences Center/Ochsner in Kenner, Louisiana to explore options and treatment.
Jennifer Rippke is a wife, mother, grandma, friend, daughter, sister, etc. that is loved by all. She’s a compassionate, caring, courageous person. She’s always willing to lend a hand to anyone in need. She’s truly an inspiration to everyone around her.
The medical bills and travel expenses continue to grow as Jennifer undergoes her treatments. 100% of the funds will go directly to Jennifer to her established benefit account. We appreciate all of the love, support, prayers and donations!
More Information on Neuroendocrine Carcinoma and why it is associated with Zebras
If you heard hoofbeats, what animal would you think of? A horse, right? It’s the most obvious answer. Unfortunately in the medical world not all diagnoses are horses, or the most likely possibility, and sometimes physicians need to look for the zebra, or the less likely scenario, when making a diagnosis. In the cancer world, neuroendocrine tumors are the zebras. Represented by this analogy because of their rarity, neuroendocrine tumors make up just 2% of nationally treated cancers.
